A month…? Really?
A twelfth of this year has already wheeled past and vanished into snips—the tiniest of memories and moments.
Our lives are small in this immense, mysterious galaxy, and yet infinitely powerful. And big. The bigness comes every time we send love into this hurting world.
Of course it would be about love, right? It’s February. And this month’s newsletter covers that…with a twist:
The February 2020 theme for the newsletter is How Do We Love The People We Hate?
Provocative and yes, a little over the top, yet I’m deadly serious. How do we heal what’s broken? How do we stop this yelling? This noise? This lashing out? How do we dial down the needle and start to listen? How do we reach out to a stranger, or almost harder, to someone we know and with whom we’re estranged?
I believe one of the first steps is simple kindness. But how do we muster what it takes to do even small acts?
I can tell you what the Dalai Lama says: “Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”
So here’s to a month of possibles. May the light you throw into the world come back and bless you a thousand times over.
